Demon Hunter Stream Acoustic Version Of “Loneliness”

Demon Hunter have shared their acoustic version of “Loneliness.” This track is from the band’s new acoustic album “Songs Of Death And Resurrection,” which will be released on March 5. Ryan Clark commented:

“When we played this song live in 2019—during the acoustic portion of the night—we pushed the limits of how slow we could do it. The slower we got, the more bleak it felt, and this only added to the vibe. After all, we were trying to channel a feeling of despair, allowing the song to truly embody its namesake. On the studio version of this ‘Resurrected’ track, you’ll hear my mom sing with me. My mom is my inspiration for singing in the first place, so it was very heartwarming to finally capture our voices together on a Demon Hunter record.”

Devin Townsend To Release “Devolution Series #1 – Acoustically Inclined, Live In Leeds” In March

Devin Townsend has announced that the first release in his “Devolution Series” will be available on March 19. the effort, which is titled “Devolution Series #1 – Acoustically Inclined, Live In Leeds,” will feature a 2019 acoustic set that he played in Leeds, UK in 2019.

Townsend commented:

“So we bring to you the ‘Devolution Series’: a grouping of oddities and interesting material that I would like people to hear, but don’t necessarily want to present as a ‘major release’.

The series will include all the quarantine songs and concerts, as well as various live shows from the past few years.

The first release is a remixed and remastered version of the ‘Live in Leeds’ show that was originally on the ‘Empath’ Ultimate Edition. It was a cool acoustic show that deserves to be heard I think, so we can use this as an introduction to the series.

I’m am currently deep in the writing of my new projects and am very excited to be doing so. Thanks for facilitating my ability to do that, and I hope you enjoy the ‘Devolution Series’.”

Bad Omens Premiere New Video For Acoustic Version Of “Burning Out”

Bad Omens have premiered a new video for their acoustic version of “Burning Out.” This track is from the band’s acoustic EP “FGBGFM Unplugged,” which was released in October 2020.

Noah Sebastian commented:

“Toward the end of last year, we went to Yosemite with our roommates and our good friend Dana to clear our heads and get away from the madness that is LA, even more so in a pandemic. After what felt like the shortest year ever once touring was shut down, it was a breath of fresh air (literally) to get out of the house again and to such a beautiful place, no less.

On our last day we drove around Bass Lake and found a pull off with an amazing fall view. Still having an acoustic video to shoot, as well as Orie and Dana and their cameras, and an acoustic guitar, we figured what better way to immortalize the memory of that moment and trip than to shoot it there on the spot.”
